BradBlog: 'Bookkeeping Error' Discovered by Controversial Clerk in Republican Waukesha County

Prosser Up by 7000+ in WI Supreme Court Race After 'Bookkeeping Error' Discovered by Controversial Clerk in Republican Waukesha County

County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus previously criticized for storing election results only on a personal computer in her office...

...Waukesha's County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus had indeed come under scrutiny for her election procedures in the past. As The BRAD BLOG flagged back in August of 2010, it was discovered that Nickolaus keeps election results on her personal PC in her office, and only on her personal PC.

At a press conference moments ago, Nickolaus attributed the confusion in numbers to an error in Microsoft Access on her computer.

An audit of Nickolaus' election procedures was subsequently performed by the county of Nickolaus' election procedures and a number of recommendations to improve her system were made, including the recommendation that she stop using the same ID and password for three different employees in her office. Nickolaus claimed, in opposing that recommendation, that it would take too much time for one employee to log off before another one logged on.

When presented with the results of the audit at a County Board meeting, Nickolaus said only she would take the recommendations "into consideration" and was then taken to task for what one member of the Executive Committee described as her "smirks" during the discussion, as reported by the Journal Sentinel in January of this year...

2. Is this why prosser never said anything about a recount?
Because he knew damn well that there were phantom votes for him? I smell a dead rat. The U.S. Justice Dept. needs to investigate this situation and needs to do it now. This is just too convenient.

4. Gawd.
One of the problems with these 'TRADE SECRET' CODE voting systems is the CORPORATE CULTURE of corruption, secrecy and lying that goes with them.

5. as far as I know she won and its quite clear
I'd be guessing the 7000 votes would be thrown out easily.
